    We will, the truss will be not visible but built into the hosel and running through to the bottom of the club using graphite/ carbon fiber rods.

    I noticed that Cer VX was an over sized model... I wonder what the feel was like?

    I think the OS model allows the player to more easily dial-ate on their yardages.

    If Tiger bags this and win the Masters, I will THINK about it. Maybe.

    I agree that they look hideous... But in my opinion, the name Truss isn't that bad. I have heard worse for sure.

    If you hit your putt hard enough to twist the face, you should probably hit that shot with 7i instead.

    Is it weird that I just bought 2 of them?😁

    Seriously, I can't even get behind this one, and if anyone could it would be me...

    A few pros (inc. Byeong-Hun An, Matt Wolff, etc.) are 'gaming' them, but feel it will be short lived. To an earlier post, An was missing everything last weekend with the thing sad to say. In all seriousness, TM makes great and highly regarded putters, why put this out without some serious consultation with serious consumers??

    Considering the investment to produce, market and distribute a product in a very competitive industry, seems really questionable.

    When I see "Truss." I think of::

    If you made putts with a putter called "White Supremacy" would you use it? What if it was called "The Hitler" putter? Or the Ebola putter?


    I think names matter to some extent.

    Your situation is too extreme to be a good example. No company is going to ever name any consumer product after something grossly offensive.

    Was able to demo the Truss this past weekend at an indoor shop; the one that looked like and anser. To me, if it works ,the looks are fine. It lays face balance, no toe hang. Standing over the putt it looks like any other anser; no issue with that at all. The issue was I couldn't putt with it. At 8 ft. I would miss 3 in a row over and over left and right with it, switch to a Ping anser style (Sigma 2) and drain 3 over and over, Stroklab #9 drain 3 over and over, face balance Taylor made Chaska same, 3 in a row over and over. The Truss just didn't do it for me.

    Truss is bad but there's a lot of bad names out there. Stroke Lab has always sounded like a cheesy adult movie title. 2 major oem's competing for worst putter name.

    Hahaha the TB2 model looks like the business end of a vacuum cleaner. Surely your cat will freak out for no apparent reason when you bring out the TRUSS for some indoor putting practice (I know, maybe 8% of you have a cat in the house)
